Stripe vs Airbnb Seattle

Jul 17, 2019 20 Comments

I am expecting an offer from Stripe and have an offer from Airbnb Seattle. I am in Seattle and do not want to move.

Anybody who worked at one of these companies, care to share your experience at these companies. I got positive vibes from both of these based on interview experience, and I liked talking to people at both these companies. For me, WLB and career progression are important and in that order.

Comp is expected to be similar for both. Don't have numbers for stripe.
Airbnb: 205 base/150 RSUs per year/20k signon
Stripe: will find out soon, should be similar

    Congrats bro, sweet offers. Both engineering are top tier. I have friends in both, and get mixed feedback, but the overall consensus would be Stripe being slightly more selective than AirBnB from what I heard. Therefore, if the TC is similar, I say Stripe 100% just because it’s still so early and not IPO’ing any time soon, so there’s still time for a lot of growth. But honestly speaking you can’t go wrong with either.

    I know the Seattle crew at Airbnb and have worked very closely with them. I like them a lot.

    Both are not well known for their WLB, but I've heard worse things coming from Stripe folks so I would go with Airbnb.

      The Seattle office is smaller than SF right now but the plan is for it to grow to the same size as SF (strategy is 5 equal hubs in SF, Seattle, Dublin, Singapore and Remote). There ought to be a lot of growth opportunities as the office grows.
